14-17 June 2015. Montego Bay, Jamaica. This immersion symposium on innovative solutions for sustainable, small-scale food production addressed: Food Security, Nutrition and Health, Climate Change and iIncome Generation.

It explored aquaponics and other intensive, climate-smart interventions, as well as renewable energy and water harvesting solutions, and how they can be scaled up in a wide variety of development settings and grassroots production and vanguard adaptations among smallholder farmers, fisherfolk, schools, youth groups, women-led cooperatives, groups of disabled farmers, and within a juvenile detention center.
